Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] how to embed basic fonts
Hello Cheryl, This question is more suitable for the xep-support list, so I'll cross-post my answer there. In order to embed a font you should have font outlines available and make appropriate changes in the font configuration in xep.xml. In this particular case you are using standard Adobe Type1 fonts. Metrics for these fonts (.afm files) are shipped with XEP, however in order to embed such font you'll need font outlines as well (.pfb or .pfa files) - we don't have a license to redistribute them; only font metrics are public. So you have to either find/buy outlines for these fonts or use some other fonts - for example, Windows comes with some TrueType fonts (like Times and Arial) which can be embedded without any problems. Moreover if you look inside of xep.xml you'll find a commented section with ready to use configuration for these fonts. XEP font configuration is thoroughly described in Section 2.4. of XEP Reference manual.
